New changes and improvements to Infants’ and Children’s Tylenol

My family has always trusted Infants' and Children's TYLENOL.  My mother gave it to me when I was a child and when my kids are feeling ill, I go to Tylenol.

Safety and convenience enhancements have been made to both Infants' and Children's TYLENOL products, including a change to the concentration of their Infants' TYLENOL products.

Read more about the new features below.

Infants' TYLENOL will be available with a new bottle that has a protective opening and a new push-in-syringe which will:
  • Further reduce the risk of children being able to get to the medicine in the bottle
  • Provide even better dosing accuracy and ease of administration to your child
  • Allow for better control when dispensing the medication and reduce spillage
Children's TYLENOL bottles will also get a protective opening that will make it more difficult for a child to open the medicine bottle.  And to help encourage industry-wide adoption of these safety innovations, TYLENOL has shared their plans with other manufacturers of pediatric acetaminophen products.

Read more about the changes to the concentration of Infants' TYLENOL.

Now there will be one concentration of acetaminophen for single-ingredient TYLENOL products for infants and children.  This change is being made to standardize dosing across their products and age groups.  As always, Infants' and Children's TYLENOL products will continue to include specially designed dosing devices appropriate to the age of the child.

TYLENOL has been working closely with other manufacturers of pediatric acetaminophen products to encourage an industry wide transition to one concentration across infants' and children's acetaminophen products.
  • It is important to be aware that there will be a time period when both the current and new concentrations of Infants' acetaminophen products will be available in stores and parents and caregivers might have both in their medicine cabinets.
  • Be sure to read and follow the dosing directions on the product that is being used.
  • Caregivers should contact their child's healthcare provider if they have questions about dosing instructions.
When Infants' TYLENOL products return to shelves, they will include these changes.  Changes to pediatric TYLENOL products will be available as early as this upcoming cold and flu season.

I love that TYLENOL is working on improving their products to help keep children safe.  I will continue to purchase the TYLENOL products that I have trusted over the years.
